That’s Just How We Feel.

Sonically in tune with the recent releases from his TDE counterparts, Jay Rock’s sophomore release shows artistic growth but falls short of fully seizing his moment.—EW

  • THE ALMIGHTY MIKEY ESCO!!!

    SHIT WAS TRASH PUNCH NEED TO STAY OFF THE MIC TRYING TO OUT DO THE ARTISTS ON THE LABEL AND DO A BETTER JOB WITH JAYS NEXT PROJECT!!! JAY SHOULD BE THE STREET ARTIST ON THE LABEL!!! FK YO FEELINGS!!!

  • GhostofHueyNewton

    Yall the same mfs that hype up anything that Wheelchair Jimmy Drop FOH!

  • DTS

    I don’t know about this one man. I enjoyed this album.

  • Da Business

    Definitely was expected more from this lp based on the hype around him.

  • Totally agree with @disqus_u9GwJg1sK6:disqus, I listened to Rock everyday for like a month or two now I’m down to once every 3-4 days

  • Kris Kompute

    This shit was whack

  • Blayer Pointdujour

    Money Trees Deuce!

  • @RHUstleRadio

    Thought it was a well rounded album with some good production and showed artistic growth….tho not the album that would put him on that next level it creates a interesting set up for his next project. Could of had better PROMO AFTER the album dropped….as well as more videos. You can always tell how much the label believes in the record by how much content is released to support it.

  • album was nice fuck yall smoking?lol

  • Jay Zebra

    Album was a mess. Hood hipsters are going to be mad at this one! Lol.

  • el jim chapo guzman

    This album was trash get the fuck outta here.

    • THE ALMIGHTY MIKEY ESCO!!!

      YOUR RETARDED DID YOU NOTICE IT SAID THE ALBUM IS DISAPPOINTING!!!
      SMH FK YO FEELINGS!!!

  • It was a decent enough album, I wasn’t disappointed by it but then again I didn’t have high expectations. You can tell that Jay is not a top level rapper tho when listening to the song “Vice City”… the rest of Black Hippy had to totally dumb down their lyrics to make Jay seem on their level.

  • album was good tho

  • thedeamkid19

    it shouldnt be in here, maybe the hype was too big

  • Reggie

    Idk how much I can trust y’all cause y’all had AB Soul’s album on this list last year and that shit was fire!!

  • darkskinforeskin

    1. so yall not gonna just milk a full list? 2. Ya’ll just skim through the music I swear.

  • Hussle

    is this a joke??? 90059…Gumbo…Money trees….the intro….vice city..the message. ALL FIRE

  • You’re off on this one.. 90059 was ill!

  • Hiii94

    FUCKIN BUGGIN!

    intro-he bodied

    easy-bake was dope

    gumbo-…dope!

    telegram- dope

    90059- bodied

    vice city- no words needed

    fly on the wall- w busta was crazy!

    THEN MONEY TREES DEUCE !?!?

    who ever decided this to be a dissapointment needs to be fired cuz rock really did his thing on this shit .

    “Hope them boys dont come knockin at my mama’s door.. AK-47 out that window think I’m paranoid… america another case I cant afford help me lord”

  • I THINK EW/ RAPRADAR EXPECTS TOO MUCH FROM THESE RAP ARTIST.. IN A TIME WHERE EVERYTHING HAS BEEN SAID ALREADY AND EVERYONE SOUNDING THE SAME… JAY ROCK DROPPED AN DOPE COHESIVE PIECE OF WORK! 90059 WAS REFRESHING, TO SAY THE LEAST!

    • MabZ

      Preach, boss

  • DoughboyToad

    It was a good album but the moment he couldn’t capture like School Boy Q did and K.dot that was the problem seems to me he should of waited to get a buzz first

  • John Bzo

    Hold up wait a minute, lemme put some seasoning in this gumbo!!!!!!!
    Jay Rock killed this ish…only minus was that he should have come out earlier when money trees was up there….

  • Gwl227

    90059 was dope I liked it better then rodeo but I’m a fan of lyrics

  • ITS ME

    This was a great album. Getcha ears checked.

  • ilexx

    I really fucked with this album. I hated maybe one song, the title track but other than that I was rocking it regularly.

  • Santigo

    Agreed! I was really hopeful leading up to the album as I’ve always felt Jay Rock is the most slept on & underappreciated guy in TDE. But the reality is, the album is poorly produced, TDE’s in house production team is not very good, they overproduce almost everything. And the weird voices & excessive amounts of weird flows got Rock out of pocket, and made the album sound weird.
